ABOUT US

We pride ourselves on providing the best quality service and using the most cutting edge products to build custom, efficient and affordable homes that fit your lifestyle.
Exceeding our clients expectations through every step from design to
completion is what we strive for in all our projects.
Reducing our impact on the environment is important to us and this is why we try to reuse, re-purpose and recycle any materials we can.
For over 25 years we've been building in the residential construction industry. We still continue to build custom framed homes and expanded into building our first modular container home in 2008. We've had the time and experience to build one of the best products on the market.

RESIDENTIAL

Homes, Cabins & Studios

We build custom pre-fab homes, resort properties and lane way suites.
Also available are backyard offices, music, art, or guest studios.
We can build any size project on any terrain, with a very energy efficient product for our climate.
We have an in-house design and engineering team to help you get started or we can work from your own plans.

Autonomous Show Suite

This show suite features many smart home technologies such as cameras, touch screen panel, security system, entertainment system, LED lighting and climate control. The home is powered by solar panels on the roof that feed into the lithium batteries and battery management system. We also have a energy management system that monitors and controls the energy loads in the unit.  As well, on the outside of the show home we have an electric vehicle charger.

Check out this YouTube video put together by Rob Avis of SAIT's Green Building Technologies that walks you through our Autonomous Show Suite.

SECURITY & DURABILITY

Containers make secure homes that can be locked down if left vacant for long periods of time.
The high strength steel structure can withstand most extremes of weather and fire, making containers a safe home option.
We can also move our homes multiple times with little impact on the structure.

ENVIRONMENT

Using a container for home construction results in less building material waste as well lowering the destructive impact on the property. We recycle and salvage as much as possible during the build process. We have the capability of being on or off grid, smart home technology, passive heating and cooling, green roofs, roof top decks, rain water collection and low maintenance exteriors.
